Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Monday, December 19, 2011
Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

Goodreads Summary

A mistake. An accident. Unwanted. Ana was never meant to be born to the Range. The people of Range have been reincarnated again and again and again for thousands of years. Then, Ana is born in the place of one of the million souls who have been reincarnated since the beginning. Some, like her best friend Sam, view Ana’s birth as a new age. Other people, like her mother, see Ana as a sign of the end. Born into an unwelcoming world, Ana must face assassins, dragons, shadow creatures, and much more, but with Sam there to help her, she might make it and even learn why she exists. 

    Teenagers who enjoy dystopian literature would enjoy Incarnate. Meadows’ unique writing style is direct and understandable without being obvious. The author created an idyllic world striving to move forward and protect itself in an inhospitable environment. Incarnate would be appreciated by mature readers.

    Jodie Meadows earns five out of five stars from me. The author’s idea is unlike anything I have heard of and very fresh. Every character has a unique personality. Ana is a dynamic character trying to understand her existence while navigating the confusing emotions felt by a teenager in love. She works incredibly hard to live in a world that many believe she was never supposed to be born into. Readers will cheer for Ana and be excited during her successes. I am very happy this book is a trilogy; I cannot wait to read what Jodi Meadows will write next.
